Consensus Recommendations for Gastric Emptying Scintigraphy: A Joint Report of the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society and the Society of Nuclear Medicine
This consensus statement from the members of the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society and the Society of Nuclear Medicine recommends a standardized method for measuring gastricExpand
Evaluation of gastrointestinal transit in clinical practice: position paper of the American and European Neurogastroenterology and Motility Societies
Assessment of regional and/or whole gut transit times can provide direct measurements and diagnostic information to explain the cause of symptoms, and plan therapy. Expand
Gastric emptying of a non‐digestible solid: assessment with simultaneous SmartPill pH and pressure capsule, antroduodenal manometry, gastric emptying scintigraphy
The non‐digestible SmartPill given with a meal primarily empties from the stomach with the return of phase III MMCs occurring after emptying the solid‐phase meal, however, in some subjects, the SmartPills emptied with isolated antral contractions, an unappreciated mechanism for emptying of a non‐Digestible solid. Expand
Biphasic nature of gastric emptying.
In vitro experiments indicated that the egg meal disintegrated much more rapidly than the chicken liver under mechanical agitation in gastric juice, lending further support to the hypothesis that the initial lag in emptying of solid food is due to the processing of food into particles small enough to pass the pylorus.

Colonic transit scintigraphy. A physiologic approach to the quantitative measurement of colonic transit in humans.
It is suggested that the transverse colon, not the cecum and ascending colon, may be the primary site for fecal storage and may provide a useful tool for evaluating normal and abnormal large intestinal physiology. Expand
Procedure Guideline for Adult Solid-Meal Gastric-Emptying Study 3.0*
This guideline is intended to simplify and standardize the methodology and reference values based on a large, multiinstitutional investigation of 123 healthy subjects, and will alleviate the problem of comparing results between institutions that did not use the same meal or imaging protocol. Expand
Osteochondritis dissecans: analysis of mechanical stability with radiography, scintigraphy, and MR imaging.
The noninvasive nature of bone scintigraphy and MR imaging makes them potentially preferable diagnostic modalities to arthrography for evaluating the mechanical status of OCD lesions. Expand
Comparison of Scintigraphy and Lactulose Breath Hydrogen Test for Assessment of Orocecal Transit (Lactulose Accelerates Small Bowel Transit)
It is demonstrated that LBTand GECS (without lactulose) are not equivalent measures of OCTT, the standard LBT accelerates OCTT and slows gastric emptying, therefore, lactulOSE has adirect accelerating effect on small intestinal transit. Expand
Whole gut transit scintigraphy in the clinical evaluation of patients with upper and lower gastrointestinal symptoms
In many patients with functional GI symptoms, there was evidence of a diffuse GI motility disorder, and whole gut transit scintigraphy is a simple, clinically useful test, as it frequently leads to a change in diagnosis and, therefore, patient management. Expand
Phase II study of treatment of advanced ovarian cancer with folate-receptor-targeted therapeutic (vintafolide) and companion SPECT-based imaging agent (99mTc-etarfolatide).
Overall response to FR-targeted therapy and DCR correlate with FR positivity demonstrated by (99m)Tc-etarfolatide imaging. Expand
